Tiny Tutus

Occasionally the dancers I make tutus for are very tiny. Here are 2 tutus both size 4; a tiny Aurora and a tiny Bluebird.

This little one has a Russian style bodice with an ivory centre panel, pink middle front panels and the rest of the bodice is a lovely soft apricot.

The overlay is 2 types of embroidered tulle sewn together with gold thread.

The little blue bird has a hand dyed lace overlay.

The corded lace motifs were cut from the lace and spangled with rhinestones before being sewn onto the bodice.

Both of these tutus were so tiny they were only just big enough to fit onto my smallest mannequin.

I am a costumier living and working in Sydney's leafy upper North Shore. I specialise in dance costumes (particularly classical ballet tutus) but I also love the challenges presented by stage and film costuming and am always looking for new costume genres to explore.
